If you have one or more severe medical problems that prevent you from working for at least twelve months, you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits. However, proving disability without an attorney can be difficult. The Social Security disability claims process can be challenging for someone who is not familiar with the system.
The Social Security Administration denies over 60% of applications for disability. However, an attorney can appeal the decision to an Administrative Law Judge and the statistics are very good for winning the appeal. Approximately 60% -70% of these appeals win! A Hawaii Social Security disability attorney can improve your chances significantly by assisting you in the applications process, gathering the necessary evidence, developing a sound legal theory, appealing a denial, and presenting your case in the most favorable light.
I UNDERSTAND YOUR STRUGGLE BECAUSE I WAS ONCE THERE MYSELF!
I first became interested in Social Security Disability law many years ago from my own experience having had a serious illness. It’s the reason why I eventually became a disability attorney.
At my law firm, you will get competent and compassionate help and you will be treated with respect. I work personally and directly with all of my clients, and handle cases at all stages of the disability applications and appeals process.
I advocate vigorously for my clients and am committed to getting my clients the benefits that they deserve.
